Quote of the day:
"Netanyahu proved once again he is a virtuoso without peers…He plays on the heartstrings of his constituents like Itzhak Perlman on his Stradivarius and leads them to vote Likud like the Pied Piper of Hamelin. Many of his voters know that his years in power have been too many and that the cloud of suspicions enveloping him has grown too thick, but Netanyahu transcends the barriers of their minds and injects his message directly into their veins. Gevalt, he cries, the town is burning and the barbarians are at the gate. He knows that the very thought of the smug smiles and smirking Schadenfreude of the despised media and their leftist backers will suffice to drive his supporters in droves to the polling booths, because loyalty to the tribe comes first."
--Haaretz commentator Chemi Shalev in a column in today's paper.*

"Now it's official – the Likud tried to lower the Arab turnout through illegal means. Hidden cameras, monitoring and voter suppression. This is what de-legitimization of a fifth of the citizenry looks like. What started out as unleashed racist incitement continued in the nation-state law and could end with a transfer government and revoking rights."
--MK Ayman Odeh, head of the Hadash-Ta'al slate, explained that the Likud-backed people showing up with cameras sparked confrontations and riots, which halted the voting process at some polling stations and caused fear among many Arabs who decided to not to go to the polling stations.**

News Nosh 4.4.19

APN's daily news review from Israel
Thursday April 4, 2019

 
Quote of the day:
"In a true democracy, a man pursued by the law does not impose elections on 9 million people as a means to avoid a trial. In a normal democracy, we don’t hold an election over corruption. You are tried for corruption, not elected...When nothing is on the agenda in the election except for Netanyahu’s future, it is clear that what came before Tuesday will be what comes after it. But it will be even more flawed, more extreme, crazier. This is not a 'crucial' election, it is only crucial for Netanyahu."
--Yossi Klein writes in Haaretz Op-Ed today.*
